The Fields of Athenry

Pete St. John / Paddy Reilly (1983)

B7 - E A E -
E A E B7
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl ca-a-alling:
E A B7
Michael they have taken you away.
E A E B7
For you stole Trevelyan's corn, so the young might see the morn',
E
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.
E A E C#m E C#m B7
Low lie the Fields of Athenry, where once we watched the small free birds fly.
E A E B7
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,
A E
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
 
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man ca-a-alling: 
Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free. 
Against the famine and the crown I rebelled, they cut me down. 
Now you must raise our child with dignity. 
Low lie the Fields of Athenry, where once we watched the small free birds fly. 
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing, 
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry. 
E A E C#m E C#m B7 | E A E B7 A E
(instrumental chorus)
 
By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star fa-a-alling, 
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky. 
For she'll live in hope and pray for her love in Bot'ny bay, 
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry. 
Low lie the Fields of Athenry, where once we watched the small free birds fly. 
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing, 
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry. 
B7 - A E
